Booking Through Thursday: Vacation Spots

Do you buy books while on vacation/holiday?
Do you have favorite bookstores that you only get to visit while away on a trip?
What/Where are they?

I always try to buy books while on vacation; they serve as great reminders of the trip. I tend to leave home with two or three books in my suitcase and return with five or six more! (This usually results in me playing a bit of real life Tetris as a I try to make everything fit into my bag.)

I don't have a specific bookstore that I always visit on vacation, since I don't have a regular vacation spot. It was always a treat to travel someplace that had a Borders store, because up until a few years ago, we didn't have a local Borders.

I really want to get out to Portland someday, to make a visit to Powell's. That many books in one place just might kill me, but at least I'll die happy.

  1. Great post ... like you I pack books to take along but I return with many extras!

  2. I pack a book to read, but I'm usually too busy to finish it.

  3. Book Zombie: Thank you!

    SmilingSal: I have to admit, I rarely read while on vacation, but I just don't feel right about traveling without books. It's like bringing part of home along with me.
